Microsoft Access 2013 Output to PDF loosing Landscape

I use the following code to export my report to pdf
DoCmd.OpenReport "TotalbyUserOrganization", acViewReport, "", "", acNormal
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "TotalbyUserOrganization", "PDFFormat(*.pdf)", myfilename, True, "", , acExportQualityScreen
DoCmd.OpenReport "TotalbyUserOrganization", acViewPreview, "", "", acHidden

Open in new window

This works fine except for all non landscape reports but when I used this code for my report that requires landscape it prints to adobe on portrait. The report view is correct. Do I need VBA code for landscape. I have searched and have not found an answer for this. This is Microsoft Access 2013. Thanks for the help.

I did some more searching and found the solution. I changed the page setup columns width to 10.75 same as on the report and it worked. Not sure why I had to do that. I spent way to much time on it.

Thinking it's the acExportQualityScreen parameter.  You're telling it to optimize output for the a screen device.

Your code, though I modified it slightly, worked fine as-is and gave me a Landscape PDF for a Landscape Report:

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptYourReport", acViewPreview, , , acHidden
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptYourReport", "PDFFormat(*.pdf)", "C:\YourFolder\Test.pdf", True, "", , acExportQualityScreen
DoCmd.Close acReport, "rptYourReport"

BTW, I am using Access 2010, so you (using 2013) might want to make sure you have all you Updates installed for Windows and Office.

Thanks for both of the replies. OM Gang, I tried acExportQualityPrint and I get the same thing. The thing of it is I have 3 reports printing in landscape and I am only having trouble with 1.  jeffCoachman, I tried your solutions saving one of my good reports as a test and I get an output cancelled error. Any other thoughts for this problem?

Oh,
You did not state you had columns setup for his report...

Glad you got it figured out.

Not sure if I am doing this correct but I did find the solution and I learned something from the other two comments. Thanks.
